From its earliest days, the firm has advised both leading international companies seeking to invest in Italy, and Italian companies operating in the Italian and international markets. Chiomenti comprises around 300 professionals working in integrated teams. Chiomenti’s objective is to provide clients with comprehensive and tailor-made advice that benefits from its multidisciplinary approach. Chiomenti has two Italian offices located in Rome and Milan, and six international offices located in New York, London, Brussels, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
